First of all, in 99.9% of normal MPA operation, pilot flying is always "the sole manipulator of the flight controls" anyway.

Second, UK CAA and most EASA CAT OMs that I have seen. Unfortunately, EASA's wording has lost a bit in translation. ICAO Annex 6, Part I paints a much clearer picture:

9.4.1 Recent experience — pilot-in-command and co-pilot
9.4.1.1 The operator shall not assign a pilot-in-command or a co-pilot to operate at the flight controls of a type or
variant of a type of aeroplane during take-off and landing unless that pilot has operated the flight controls during at least three
take-offs and landings within the preceding 90 days on the same type of aeroplane or in a flight simulator approved for the
purpose.
Or are we going to start counting flaps as flight controls now?

If you mind, please read the entire FCL.060. Please take a special look at the paragraph (2), where it says "...has carried out in the preceding 90 days at least 1 take-off, approach and landing at night as a pilot flying ...".
In paragraph (1) it does not specify that those take-offs, approaches and landings must be done as PF. Or maybe I'm lost in translation...


A pilot shall not operate an aircraft in commercial air transport or carrying passengers:
(1) as PIC or co-pilot unless he/she has carried out, in the preceding 90 days, at least 3 take-offs, approaches and landings in an aircraft of the same type or class or an FFS representing that type or class. The 3 take-offs and landings shall be performed in either multi-pilot or single-pilot operations, depending on the privileges held by the pilot; and
(2) as PICat night unless he/she:
(i) has carried out in the preceding 90 days at least 1 take-off, approach and landing at night as a pilot flying in an aircraft of the same type or class or an FFS representing that type or class; or
(ii) holds an IR;
(3) as cruise relief co-pilot unless he/she:
(i) has complied with the requirements in (b)(1); or
(ii) has carried out in the preceding 90 days at least 3 sectors as a cruise relief pilot on the same type or class of aircraft; or
(iii) has carried out recency and refresher flying skill training in an FFS at intervals not exceeding 90 days. This refresher training may be combined with the operator’s refresher training prescribed in the relevant requirements of Part-ORO.(4) When a pilot has the privilege to operate more than one type of aeroplane with similar handling and operation characteristics, the 3 take-offs, approaches and landings required in (1) may be performed as defined in the operational suitability data established in accordance with Part-21.
(5) When a pilot has the privilege to operate more than one type of non- complex helicopter with similar handling and operation characteristics, as defined in the operational suitability data established in accordance with Part-21, the 3 take-offs, approaches and landings required in (1) may be performed in just one of the types, provided that the pilot has completed at least 2 hours of flight in each of the types of helicopter, during the preceding 6 months.

I canít be bothered reading all of that argument, I thought I would just add that my company are scheduling sim sessions in June literally for 3 TO/LDGs. we can expect to be in for a few minutes a time.
